>> catherine: secretary of state hillary clinton rang in the new year in the hospital. she was admitted sunday after doctors found a blood clot between her brain and skull. mary snow has more on her condition. >> reporter: on a day when secretary of state hillary clinton was supposed to be getting ready to return to work, she spent another day at a new york hospital. her doctors say they are treating her with blood
6:41 pm
thinners after discovering a blood clot in the vein between the brain and skull behind the right ear. they expect her to make a full recovery and say she did not suffer stroke or neurological damage. dr. jack ansell is not involved in secretary clinton's case, but has treated cases like hers and calls them rare. he is the chairman of the department of medicine at lenox hill hospital. >> reporter: what does this mean for the future? >> i think her future is as good as her past. she should recover from this, she will be treated with blood thinners. i can't say how long because i don't know all of the circumstances, but certainly a minimum of three to six months, may well be longer. in some rare cases it could be life long, but many patients are on blood thinners for life for other conditions. she should recover fully and get back to work. >> reporter: and that work is grueling, hillary clinton has traveled to more than one hundred countries as secretary of state and logged close to a million miles during that time. dr. ansell says that while travel is something to watch out for among people who
6:42 pm
suffer blood clots, most often in the leg veins, which mrs. clinton did have in the late 1990s, he doesn't see her travel schedule being an impediment. i think the travel is probably more an issue with the blood clot she had back about twelve years ago in her leg, and so anybody who has had a blood clot, they're always at risk for developing another one, and the risk is probably a little greater than if they never had a blood clot. so, i think travel is potentially an issue for the secretary, but i would imagine that when she travels she's not sitting in a coach seat cramped up and sitting still. >> reporter: secretary clinton is planning to step down as president obama's second term begins. while she has repeatedly said she is not interested in running for president again, she is viewed as the democratic favored in 2016 should she choose to run. >> catherine: that was mary snow reporting. there are also questins about when clinton will be able to testify on
